New Historical Photo Exhibit at the Richmond Library

A new photo exhibit featuring 8 historical photos of Richmond has opened at the Richmond Public Library.  Produced by the Goulbourn Historical Society, it is one of the ways the Society is helping to celebrate Richmond’s 200th anniversary.  The photo exhibit will hang on the Library’s Artspace wall until the end of June.  There are two laminated information sheets on the filing cabinet underneath the exhibit that tell something of interest about each of the photos.  There is also a display of historical items on open shelves nearby.  The photos come from the Historical Society’s Archives, and the public is most welcome to come and have a look at the exhibit.
